Having just finished a wedding envelope job with a lovely forest green ink, and envious of those who were able to attend some of the wonderful flourishing classes offered over the summer, I decided to try my hand and move into Autumn with a greeting for a fine colleague.  The ink is Bill Lilly's recipe of Pelikan 4001 with the addition of powdered gum arabic, brilliant green with a few drops of black.  Also some Spectralite nickel, Twinkling H2O copper, and pastel pencils.  So nice to be back in the studio!


  1. Gorgeous piece Jody! Your colleague will be thrilled.

  2. this is absolutely gorgeous!!! there's no doubt that the birthday girl is going to LOVE this (and love YOU forever for making it for her!!). :)))

  3. Hi Jody,

    Love the two variations of capital B! I have been enjoying the Bill Lilly ink recipe as well. It seems that it can really do the job. Great work. The flourishes are very lively!
